Just make sure to pack some paper around the jars so they survive the journey!

Q. Why do you genderise your Fit Pit man and Fit Pit woman scents?
A. We gave it a great deal of thought before gender labeling anything as it’s not our personal choice to. When Fit Pit was in development we did a lot of research. The vast majority of men we spoke to said that to buy a deodorant from ‘The Green Woman’ they would need it to be clearly labeled for ‘men’. Fit Pit man was developed with extra sweat protection, and we designed the over all scent to appeal to most men. Fit Pit woman has been designed with a blend of essential oils that help balance women’s hormones, and we’ve had lots of women report that it helps during menopause, and for hot flushes aswell. It also has added Aloe Vera to help soothed shaved skin. We do have customers that buy the opposite gender Fit Pit and we celebrate that. All our new scents are now gender neutral, as there’s no reason for them not to be. ‘Peppermint’, ‘Tea tree & Orange’ and ‘Rose’.

A. We are always happy to hear about any Green Project, and will help where ever we can. Please email eve@thegreenwoman.co.uk.

Q. Can antibiotics or antibacterial wash interfere with how your Fit Pit deodroant works?
A. Yes they can. Antibotics destroy your body's good bacteria aswell as the bad. Your skin is covered in good bacteria which is vital for health. Our Fit Pit deodorant prevents the smell causing bacteria from thriving. Whist taking antibiotics you may find that your good bacteria levels are disrupted and you may need to wash under your arms more or apply Fit Pit more regularly. Antibacterial washes used under the arms can similarly disrupt your natural balance of good bacteria. Once the course of Antibiotics has finished and your natural levels of healthly bacteria have re-established on your skin you can continue using Fit Pit as normal.

Q. Is it possible to be sensitive to any ingredients even though they are organic?
A. Yes, it is possible to be sensitive or allergic to natural and organic ingredients. Our Fit Pit deodorant contains a mineral salt called bicarbonate of soda, it is rare but a small number of people are sensitive to it and might experience redness or soreness. Unfortunately for these people Fit Pit won't be suitable.

Q. I left my Fit Pit somewhere warm and its melted is it still effective?
A. Yes its usually fine to keep using it, give it a good stir and use half as much as usual. Store somewhere cool in future.

Q. Does Fit Pit make yellow stains on white clothes?
A. Fit Pit shouldn't stain at all as you use only a very small amount and its absorbed directly on to the skin. Occasionally people that have used antiperspirants in the past can find their pits detoxing when switching to a natural deodorant. As the sweat glands are no longer blocked they sweat out toxins that have built up. This detox usually only lasts a short while.

Q. How do I make a complaint?
A. If there is something you are not entirely satisfied with, please contact help@thegreenwoman.co.uk and we will try our best to make it right.
